vol28's Rhapsody, White) and The US (Ultra, interview here - Texas, Legend - Connecticut, Survivor - Philadelphia). Ohio's White Boy And The Average Rat Band made a very obscure and very cool fuzz-drenched hard rocker that is said to be the work of just one talented guy, although he borrowed some mates to pose as a fake 'band' for the album cover. Trespass, Sledgehammer and Warrior are three great UK bands that I have come across when trawling through some obscure NWOBHM comps, who only made one or two singles. Warrior being a curio that I found on a 1980 comp called New Electric Warriors, a great track that has more in common with the early 70s' fuzzed-up wah grooves.
For the more metal-minded listeneres out there, this comp will be a real treat, and for those who are not so, this is also just a wicked collection of hard rock so.....enjoy, and more importantly.......\m/ ROCK OUT \m/.
